SHM/Constant visual disturbance
Hey,
I have SHMs about every other month. My triggers seem to be excercise and bright lights/ sunshine. I have been experiencing these migraines for about 3 years and do not have them under control. They are scary.

I have also been having constant visual disturbances since September. I have been to 8 specialists, and no one can find the cause. My new visual symptoms are similar to that of a migraine aura, though not as intense and they do not go away or proceed a headache.

Is there such a thing as a constant visual migraine? Could these new visual disturbances (light sensitivity/shadows...) be at all related to my SHMs?

Thanks!

Hi,

Your symptoms are very suggestive of a migraine variant termed as Persistent aura without infarction. This condition is not fully understood but results in constant aura symptoms which are mostly visual but can be auditory as well.
Please refer to the links below for more information:
